SANTA FE, N.M. – Investigators in the brutal killing of 13-year-old Jeremiah Valencia are now turning to Facebook for new evidence.


According to the Santa Fe New Mexican, investigators obtained search warrants for social media accounts belonging to Jordan Nuñez, his father Thomas Ferguson and Valencia’s mother Tracy Peña. All three have been charged in the boy’s death.

An affidavit filed in state District Court references a message Ferguson wrote to Nuñez talking about their reconnection after having been separated for years and then he allegedly references Valencia.

“Jordan the trouble makers gone you got rid of his [expletive] and now you are starting to get like him,, n you have started lying to me son about things that you have been doing and done [sic].”

Nuñez then replies allegedly referring to his remorse for what happened.

“I miss that [expletive] to. I feel bad for what I did and if I could do things differently I would of but I can’t I have nightmares…I think about that kid everyday cause I looked in his eye as he left I see that look everyday [sic].”

District Attorney Marco Serna says his team will definitely be using the Facebook messages as evidence in court proceedings.
